Your Senior Portraits are the IDEAL place to express your unique style, a point of view, or even just a place to have fun and live out a fantasy. It just takes a little dreaming and scheming to make your images stand out and look AMAZING.
After we book your session date, you can begin the creative process! Here are a few steps you can use to make this process fun and easy.
1. Conceptualize an idea: Preparation and Collaboration
Collect images and ideas-Pinterest
Pinterest is a great place to start. Start a “Mood Board” to collect your visual ideas.
If the digital route is not your style, go analog and use magazine clippings, bits of fabric, ribbon, and inspiration from life. Nature, photographs, etc! Anything can be inspiration! Collect your ideas on a corkboard or glue them to a poster board.
What is your personal style? Is it edgy, vintage or whimsical?
The wonderful thing about wielding a camera is that I get to take photos. The not so great thing is that I need subjects to practice on! There is a combination of features on a face that a camera loves; and cracking that code can be a mystery. It can be a shot in the dark sometimes. I know, I know...tough job right? Asking beautiful people to hang out with me and look beautiful? It's not as easy as you think! It can be uncomfortable for me, and for them. So I did ask this young woman my husband works with, and after some thought, she emailed me and said yes. And I am so glad she did! I not only had a lot of fun taking her photos.
It's Prom Season, and everyone is at the top of their game, looking sharp. One of my models Savana Fredericks asked me to come and shoot her before the big event with her friends at the historic Davenport hotel. It was a mob of flashbulbs (not! try iPhones) and some of the prettiest young people ever. And some very proud/nervous/awestruck parents...

Rebeca is just such a stunning beauty. I don't know if a bad photo can be taken of this smart, witty girl. We shot these in the newly developed Kendall Yards area for that contrast of sweet girl in sort of raw, organic setting. I love the way these turned out!
I have known Michael's parents forever. Ahem. I don't care to mention how long, but Michael was little when I first met him. Now he is all grown up and well, looking like a dang Abercrombie model. He is a football star at Shadle Park, and a good guy to boot. So proud of you Michael!
Tim is a gregarious guy who will be a Senior at Gonzaga Prep. It was so much fun shooting with Tim at his family's Victorian home in the country. We shot on the dynamic acreage around the house, where I had a great time getting to know Tim. He enjoys sleep, rows crew and has a contagious smile.
I took Sam's senior photos this year after I took his family's photo's last fall. He is such a sweetheart. A smart, good-looking guy who is planning on going pre-med in college. And also plays the guitar. He was a great sport about trying all sorts of different things on our shoot downtown, including going into a dingy alley to take some shots with a graffiti wall as a background.
Taking photos is just one of the ways I can express my creativity and appreciation for unique beauty. I am a visual person, and I truly enjoy opening my eyes and capturing life. It is all art, and I revel in its creation. This is where I post my inspirations, ideas and overall brainstorms that fuel my creativity.
